Positioned on the Pacific coastline, a 75-minute drive from San Jose and the International airport (SJO), Jaco enthusiastically procures 3 miles of beaches, titled beachfront property and a bustling town center full of fun and enjoyment for visitors of all ages.
With a population of approximately 10,000 people, Jaco, a former sleepy surf town, has progressed and expanded to be the fasting growing Coastal town in the country with the most diverse selection of amenities.
There are various reasons for the rapid growth and perhaps the proximity to the capital city, San Jose, where 75% of the country’s population lives and works, is the largest factor. A quick hour drive on the country’s newest highway brings local vacationers to a warm and inviting, laid back environment for weekend festivities and to their seaside getaways.
Los Suenos Resort and Marina which is located 5 miles north of Jaco was perhaps the catalyst for many other developments, businesses, and professionals to make their way out to the beach. Touted as the country’s finest and most exclusive Master Planned community, it bestows world-class amenities upon the area for both private homeowner and public enjoyment. Here you’ll encounter the premier private marina, 18 hole championship golf course, Marriott hotel, Marina Village and 11 restaurants throughout the property. Breathtakingly beautiful with ultra luxurious standards in all regards, Los Suenos is one of a kind and a “Dream beyond Compare”.
Aside from the convenient location, world-class facilities and developments, Jaco is one of the few towns where one can purchase titled ocean front property. In the 1970s the Bay of Jaco was titled by the CR government, extolling great value to investors and homeowners alike. Most other beachfront properties in CR are leased from the government, termed Concession land. Beauty, nature, proximity to major centers, titled beach front, great amenities and world class facilities at your fingertips are what is shaping and creating Costa Rica’s finest and most complete seaside destination.
